The PureCompression Elite Compression Socks feature graduated compression to help improve athletic performance. The greatest amount of compression is located in the lower part of the compression sock and the least in the calf area. This helps to improve blood circulation, giving muscles more of the oxygenated blood they need to recover. The Elite Compression Socks also help to stabilize muscles, reducing shin splint pain and leg cramping.

I like these socks. It's always something of a trade-off with compression socks between amount of compression and ease of putting on. I have some other socks that are much more expensive and offer somewhat better compression but they are such a hassle to put on that I avoid them (I feel like I've done a workout after getting both on). These are a good compromise. I do wish these were just a little shorter (I'm a tall guy and they come right to the bend of my knees unless I push them down a little). I don't know how well they hold up over the long run as I haven't had mine for that long. I first ordered two pair and liked them so well I ordered another two pair, which is probably the best "rating" of them. Taking the price in to account, I gave them five stars. Otherwise (and if it was possible), I might have given them four and a half stars.
A co-worker shared that her mom bought her copper socks to help her leg fatigue from working long hours in retail. That same night I came home and ordered these on Amazon. I was not confident they'd work, but was hopeful. I am very glad I bought them. Since I have been wearing these copper socks my toes don't lock-up in a painful position (eight of my co-workers say they have experienced this problem) and my calves don't burn with pain after standing 4 to eight hours.
I haven't tried other compression socks so I can't compare but I love these! I had ordered them in pink and just ordered another pair in black so I can rotate them. I'm so happy I found these since I haven't had any pain since I started wearing them. Some days I am on my feet for 12-15 hours ,my legs would be aching at the end of the day and the next morning my feet would hurt horribly. The first day I wore these I noticed a difference that night and the next morning my feet felt great! I wear a 8 - 81/2 in shoes and purchased mediums. The fit perfect from the toe to under my knee
I work on my feet, and suffer from arthritis in my ankles, tendonitis in one foot and plantar fasciitis in the other. I've tried many different compression socks, and these fit best. Most effective coupled with high quality insoles and extra ankle support on long shifts.
Mom loves these socks! She's in a job where she works with special needs children and is on her feet all day. With a recent diagnosis of a health condition that affects circulation in her lower extremities, I bought these in a Small, Medium and Large for my dad who also has circulation problems. Mom liked these so much she wore the Small and the Mediums the next day (I wasn't sure if the Small might be too tight) and she's asking me if she can wear the Large! Lol! Needless to say, great purchase and I'm buying more for her and a couple for me for when I travel. Thank you!
I purchased these to wear during running. After having sclerotherapy I felt like I needed more support for my legs because of discomfort while running. These socks were very comfortable for compression socks and I could feel a huge difference while running vs wearing regular socks. I also wear these throughout the day while doing everyday chores and errands due to the comfort.
I am a long-distance runner currently training for a marathon, and was looking for a pair of socks to wear as a recovery item after long runs to give my tired legs a little more support and to help with circulation. They are still relatively new for me, but I have worn them for this purpose and really liked the support they provided, particularly the sock area to help with tired feet. This was my first purchase of this type of item so can't comment on how they compare to the more expensive brands of compression socks, but for what I was looking for these seem to work well. I would recommend them for anyone interested in a similar purchase. I do plan to try them for running also (vs. recovery), but we are still experiencing the heat of summer and I will be waiting until cooler temps for that.
Great compression socks. They were sized just right and have the right graduated support for all day. I had back surgery several months ago and found as my back is healing my left ankle has been swelling. My doctor suggested compression socks and these work for everyday on the go. They are not heavy but are ribbed so will not fit in a dress shoe. I am wearing them for work. I am a professional home stager and on the go constantly. They are perfect for my tennis shoes.
